Links 'Reveal in Finder' function as InDesign
Add an extra Links panel function under or above 'Reveal in Bridge' called maybe 'Reveal in Finder', as already exists in InDesign.
This has been under review for four years?
In InDesign, I can locate a link in 5 seconds.
In Illustrator, I have to wait for Bridge to load which isn't quick.
Duh... how about making software more useful for artist with features like this rather than using AI to dumb down our jobs so we get paid less and accountants can feel really creative with one button effects

+1 it is weird that you have to go to Bridge to locate links.
YES. Nobody dealing with vectors is using Bridge. Bridge is incapable of previewing white graphics and logos as you can't change the preview background (so you can't see your vector artwork...), so in my mind this is a useless feature.

This would be a most welcome addition. Could I also recommend 'Edit in...' like in InDesign, so that we can jump into the relevant program directly, bypassing finder/bridge completely.
Ruth Daly commented
This would be an awesome addition, I use the option daily in indesign to navigate through folders.
Kris Hunt commented
Yes, I need this a thousand times more than "Reveal in Bridge". I never use Bridge.

Please put this in. Its very useful.

Forgot to add centering commands like indesign, right now have to manually select the object and the picture and align, or shrink object down by eye.

Would be good in general if links worked more like indesign, as in low/med/high res jpeg preview and faster rendering time, and not clogging up the file by default. (I know you can turn embedding off but the workflow for that is hardly smooth.) In indesign it just works seamlessly. Also cropping of images would could be better handled.
a) Have a picture box feature. (right now I need to create an object, place the image, the create a mask..... much easier to just make a picture box and click place.
b) add functionality would be if you were to do it through the current work flow, and create a mask around a picture it would automatically turn it into a picture box.
c) add cropping handles to the box like in indesign.
I use Bridge, so having the Bridge link there is helpful, but I use Finder much more often.
Or maybe by adding a hidden Alt+Click option when clicking the link. That'd be useful.
It's already there if you go via the 'Linked File' on the Control Bar, but there is logic in putting it in the panel as I have yet to come across anyone that uses Bridge.
